Comments about Master International Sports Management - At the institution - London - Greater London

  • Objectives
    This unique course has been developed in conjunction with the State University of New York (SUNY) in the USA. The course involves study in Cortland, New York State, and London, UK. London Metropolitan University is proud to be working with SUNY: their sport management provision is recognised as amongst the very best in the USA. Successful completion will give you two Masters degrees - one from London Met and one from SUNY. This unusual dual award gives you an increased chance of professional employment in international sport, wherever you wish to work. In 2008, we will also seek accreditation for the course from the North American Society for Sport Management (NAASM). Another unusual feature of the course is that it involves a four month internship period in either the UK or the US, giving students valuable work experience in the industry. With more and more internationally focused sporting events taking place around the world, there is a growing need for appropriately trained managers who have a global perspective. The 2012 London Olympic Games has also produced a need for competent sporting professionals with an international education, before, during, and after the games themselves.
  • Entry requirements
    All students should have a lower second Honours degree or equivalent in sports management or related. Appropriate work experience and professional qualifications are an advantage. All applicants will have to satisfy the University as to their ability to pursue Postgraduate study successsfully through the English language.
